Always a reliable place for a great meal. The ambiance is great, the people are great and the food is alway great. If I am in the UES, I typically will be here.
We had such a great dinner! And we loved our server Chantelle she was awesome!
Delicious food and terrific service!
unfortunately T-Bar is closing at its present location and they do not have another space at the moment. i think the menu was limited because of this and the crowd was thin.
i hope they will open again. if not, they will be a restaurant that is sorely missed
The food and wait staff are wonderful. We have been coming here since the restaurant opened.
Love this restaurant
I have gone to T-Bar for many years and had many enjoyable meals. This latest meal was a disappointment. First, they have increased their prices substantially -- $19 for a caesar salad? $19 for any dessert?? Then, when I ordered a vodka on the rocks, I received a glass of ice cubes with just a little vodka at the bottom. When I called this to the waiter's attention, he just shrugged and said he couldn't do anything about it. Not particularly friendly as well.
All in all, disappointing. And finally, when the bill arrived, there was an enclosed announcement that they would be closing the restaurant on Sept 18, 2021 and relocating to an as yet undisclosed nearby location by late fall, 2021. When I spoke to the owner, he said he was first trying to negotiate a lease with one of several possible spots. A new restaurant by late fall? Good luck!
Just make the reservation and enjoy! It's the best!
Love T-Bar! Always, are go to restaurant on the upper East side!
Great food! Will definitely return!
Great food as always. T-Bar is a favorite!
Always great food and service. One of my regulare spots on the UES. Glad to see the bar is open again at last.
I’ve been going to restaurant week dinner there for years and the always had a great menu including filet mignon, which is a specialty there. This year there was terrible choices and we ordered off the regular menu, which is very overpriced.
I understand that the restaurants had a rough year, but they won’t have people coming back if that don’t accommodate their customers.
Also, the service was not good at all. I doubt we would go back.
Great guacamole. The burger was fine but not deserving of the great reviews. Server did not know the cuts of beef used. Pricey for the quality
Everything was wonderful. The food was excellent and service outstanding. Such an enjoyable evening.
We love TBar and it’s consistently delicious food and impeccable service. The best!!
It’s been over a year, since we were here. It was wonderful, as always. Great food and service. Highly recommend.
excellent food. service is a bit slow but not so much as to discount the food quality
Service, food and ambiance were great. We ordered the Porterhouse which was cooked to perfection. Tbar is always a good bet.
Delicious food and exceptional service. We will definitely be back!
It was wonderful as usual. Food, atmosphere and service were perfect. I will be back!
It's a fine option on the UES for steakhouse. Nice location and ambience. Mediocre food and service.
Always reliable food and friendly service
Our dinner was excellent, service on point. Utensils came individually wrapped in paper,
bread came in a basket wrapped in plastic. Tables spaced appropriately. Will be back.
Delicious as always. Service excellent as always.
Wonderful experience! First time eating here and will definitely be back. Food and cocktails were great. We were not rushed and enjoyed everything!
Great food and service!
Loved the service, the setting and the food was excellent.
Kitchen seems better than ever. Everything they make is delicious and well executed. Service and staff excellent and welcoming as ever. Owner Tony on the floor making sure things are perfect. Welcome back!
Had dinner with a friend. Service was friendly and very good. Food as always delicious.
we wrntceitb another couple who had never been to tbar , they loved it, food was great, guys shared delicious porterhouse, i had salmon abs friend had turkey burger, we shared two tbar salads and we love that they split it for us, friend brought bottle of wine and corkage fed wad very reasonable . felt covid protocols were flowfc , plexiglass and everything g wad wrapped and sanitary , however felt like it was more than 50 percent capacity , however we we fine as were sll double vaccinated. so glad to have thar bs k !!
Always EXCELLENT FOOD, however our server was curt and had “attitude”. Next time we will avoid his station.
Just the night out we needed after being vaccinated. Yes its a bit of a splurge but it is worth it. Generous pours from the bar. Recommend the Prime aged rib eye - it easily feeds 2 guys & the warm octopus appetizer. all 3 salads what you'd expect & no attitude if you split it. Tried the apple crisp. will try something different next time.
Good food but they basically kicked us our after 90 minutes so we didn't have achance for coffee or dessert.
Food and service were excellent as always. The bread is amazing.
Food Service Ambiance WONDERFUL!
If you want to catch COVID or something else, dine here! 35% capacity all crammed into 25% of the entire space! Tables too close to each other. Barriers between tables are open at the bench seat sides so you’re eating 1-2 feet away without protection from the table next to you. I supported them with take out and crazy high tips for the past year and treated poorly when dining in.
Hostess was not nice and had a bad attitude. I arrived 10 minutes early and was told if I get seated the 90 minute table limit starts then or I could wait until my reservation time and then be seated. Table was empty, it was an early reservation and what did it really matter if I sat down ten minutes early? Perhaps I might have had an additional cocktail and increase the total spent? Poorly managed.
Always an excellent time at T-Bar. The food is consistent, whether it’s the Rib Eye or the Chicken Milanese. Cooked to perfection with a helpful staff. It’s one of the restaurants that I always come back to time and time again
Waiter was excellent but hostess rushed dinner despite us arriving half hour early to an empty restaurant. Felt pushed out.
The burgers were phenomenal. In this era of covid, it felt very safe.
